    Looks like I spoke too soon. I checked one of the leaves today and found 3 'protuberances'. Typically, these bumps turn into plantlets & poof --- more plants. While they're a bit tough to see, they're on the top of the folder leaf. Soon I'll be able to start sharing these guys...

    Hi! I have d.ascendens (not sure about the localization but is is most likely Bandeira Peak, BA). It is about 7-8cm in diameter. Looks like this:


    This mother plant provided fresh seeds 2 weeks ago, now started sprouting. So by the end of October I should have some young plants available.

    I thought D. villosa and D. ascendens looked very similar.

    My D. ascendens.
    Ivan Snyder confirmed the ID it as D. villosa. It lacks the triangular stipules that D. capensis has and doesn't grow as much of s stem.

    D. ascendens is D. villosa var. ascendens - this has not been validly published.

    See Fernando Rivadavia's photos:

    Many of the photos of D. ascendens looks closer to Drosera graomogolensis.
